First trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story is unveiled

Han Solo movie trailer to show during Super Bowl

The world got its first look at the newest "Star Wars" movie during the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

It co-stars Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian, as well as Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany.

It all seems quite low-key, until a spectacular glimpse of the shiny, new Millennium Falcon being pursued by a Star Destroyer and TIE fighter squadron in a thunderstorm.

So yeah, we're expecting this Han Solo prequel to make big money... "I'm going to be a pilot, the best in the galaxy", the recruit replies.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is expected to be released on 25 May 2018. With a full-fledged trailer on Good Morning America, of course!

Alden Ehrenreich will play a younger version of Harrison Ford's scruffy-looking nerf herder, Donald Glover will play a younger version of Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian. This is how a lot of trailers for Star Wars end up dropping these days; Rogue One did the same thing. The trailer teased a few moments that lead to the titular character - played by Alden Ehrenreich - owning the Millenium Falcon, as well as meeting his greatest ally, Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo).

The trailer also suggests that "Solo" might be a sci-fi heist movie, with Harrelson's character recruiting a young Solo (and Chewie) for an undescribed job: "Hey, kid". Well, the first trailer for the movie officially directed by Ron Howard gives you the answer. Now they'll also want to know what happened to Qi'ra, as she looks like another badass female character for the "Star Wars" universe to explore, and she was gone by "Episode IV".
